"Pope Benedict XVI issued a papal order clarifying the Church's position on birth control and calling for all Catholics to avoid spaying and neutering their pets. The pontiff speaking from a top his his royal throne hinted at the move in his Sunday benediction reminding all worshipers 'Christ teaches us that just as our own unborn are without sin, so are the unborn dogs, cats, and chinchillas. God's command that we be fruitful and multiply did not come with a limitation on legs. As you live your lives attempting to atone for Original Sin, we must ensure our faithful companions do not have sin forced on them through the use of birth control.'
ASPCA spokesperson Bob Barker immediately condemned the Pope saying "the best thing that can be done for puppies who cannot be taken care is the prevention of their birth. By doing what the Church is asking we're essentially asking for a situation you see in so many third world countries- puppies having puppies. These dogs are like our children. Would you let your teenage daughter and son wonder around at night unsupervised? Of course not they'd come home pregnant! For children we have vasectomy, condoms, birth control pills, morning after pills, and abortions. For dogs and cats we have spaying and neutering.
